These awards recognize individual volunteers through a statewide award program to highlight the importance of volunteerism and community service in the State of Illinois. For profit businesses that support service will also be recognized.
Individual awards will be presented to one youth (18 years and under), one adult (19-54 years old) and one retiree/senior (55 years and older) in each of the Commission's five service regions across the state (Northeast, Northwest, East Central, West Central and Southern). National Service Awards will be presented to one AmeriCorps and one Senior Corps member in each of the five regions. One award will be provided to a for profit business in each of the five service regions. Within each category, applications will be given special priority based on the areas: economic opportunity, education, environmental conservation, and disaster preparedness/response, health, and veteran’s affairs.
Nominations are due to Serve Illinois by January 31, 2014. Recipients will be selected and notified by April 1, 2014. The Serve Illinois Commission will host a ceremony to honor recipients on April 28, 2014 at the Executive Mansion in Springfield.
